A 301-kg boat is sailing 16.5° north of east at a speed of 2.08 m/s. Thirty seconds later, it is sailing 37.2° north of east at a speed of 3.60 m/s. During this time, three forces act on the boat: a 32.7-N force directed 16.5° north of east (due to an auxiliary engine), a 21.7-N force directed 16.5° south of west (resistance due to the water), and W (due to the wind). Find the magnitude and direction of the force W. Express the direction as an angle with respect to due east. magnitude 1 N
direction 2 °
